'Glee' brings in new writers; Paltrow surprises fans

Perhaps the folks over at "Glee" heard our prayers for a few less "teachable moments" next season.

Six new writers have been added to the show, The Hollywood Reporter says. Allison Adler, Marti Noxon, Roberto Aguirre-Sacasa, Michael Hitchcock, Matt Hodgson and Ross Maxwell have joined Ryan Murphy and team to craft story lines for Season 3.

The group of new writers brings quite a pedigree.

Noxon has worked on "Buffy the Vampire Slayer," "Angel," "Mad Men," "Grey’s Anatomy" and "Private Practice," and will serve as "Glee's" consulting producer. Adler, whose credits include "No Ordinary Family" and "Chuck," will be co-executive producer, while Aguirre-Sacasa from HBO's "Big Love" will serve as co-producer.

Perhaps that will mean less obvious scenes devoted to winning Chris Colfer another Emmy and more surprises.

Speaking of surprises, our favorite "Glee" substitute teacher, Gwyneth Paltrow, gave fans a treat at a recent "Glee Live! In Concert" tour stop in East Rutherford, New Jersey.

Paltrow took to the stage as Holly Holliday and performed "Forget You" to the crowd's delight. The performance is almost sure to appear in the upcoming film "Glee Live! 3D," set to be released in August.

    "less obvious scenes devoted to winning Chris Colfer another Emmy"?

    Um, Chris Colfer hasn't won an Emmy.

    I don't get this show. Why would I want to watch a show that just does garbage renditions of famous songs rather than just youtubing the original song?
